I love the vibrant colours in this photo of Canadian Ian “Captain Canada” Millar, riding “Star Power”, during the equestrian show jumping team competition at the Olympics, back on Aug. 5, 2012. The Canadian team finished fifth. Can you believe this dude is 65 years old??? AND he became the first person ever to compete in 10 Olympics! He also says he will be back for Rio 2016… wow.

A Great-looking UK fan was cheering for Great Britain vs Canada at the 2012 Olympics, but our womens Canadian football team were too strong for them and won 2-0 on August 3, 2012 in Coventry, England. Go Canada!

(This was the quarter-finals, so Team Canada went on to play the US women in the semi-finals and lost, so the next game for Canada is for the bronze. Now, for the gold, it will be a rematch of the 2011 World Cup finals Japan vs USA, where Japan was the underdog and won! So USA will be looking for revenge! EXCITING!!!)

Meet the youngest Olympics athlete of 2012 Victoria Moors of Canada, age 15. Her gymnastics team were not expected to be contenders but finished 5th in the Team competition. “Our goal was to just finish top eight. But coming to the Olympics and finishing fifth, we weren’t expecting that. It’s unreal right now,” said an ecstatic Moors.
